BlackFog, Inc. announces the release of its on-device Cybersecurity and Data Privacy solution for Android devices. BlackFog Privacy protects users from online threats by putting a stop to unauthorized data collection, profiling, cryptomining, phishing, and fake news over the Internet and Dark Web.
BlackFog operates in the background filtering traffic and protecting outbound data on devices. However, on certain devices, notably devices running a modified version of Android called OxygenOS on OnePlus devices users may notice that BlackFog routinely stops.
